Does your radar automatically classify drones? Right, that’s what we thought.

You want to detect and track drones - small objects which traditional radar can’t see. And even if you’ve managed to find a radar which can see small objects, it’s unlikely it can tell birds apart from drones.

At Robin Radar Systems, we’ve specialised in detecting and tracking small objects for 33 years. Birds actually. And even though we started with tracking birds, we validated our data with drones, in order to prove our radar tracking accuracy.

So we’re in a unique position, with a wealth of experience, to detect, track, and classify (read separate) birds from drones. And that’s exactly what we’ve built ELVIRA® to do.

Where most other radars don’t provide classification of birds and drones, providing a high operator-workload, ELVIRA® does that for you, automatically.

So you can concentrate on what action to take about the unauthorised drone in your airspace.



X-Band 9650MHz
Real-time position and track in 2D
4W average power output
1.3s track update rate
5km instrumented range


Detect Up to 5 km

Need unlimited 360-degree coverage? We’ve got you covered.

ELVIRA® covers a full 360 degrees and comes with a standard instrumented range of five kilometres. It can detect larger fixed-wing targets at a range of up to five kilometres, with smaller multi-rotor drones detected at up to three kilometres.

Completely securing an area though, relies on more than just range detection. It requires flexibility and reliability.


ELVIRA® allows unlimited coverage by providing the means to combine multiple radar devices into an integrated sensor network. The output from multiple radars can be incorporated into one unambiguous picture, meaning a single drone causes a single alarm.

You won’t have numerous confusing alarms being created for a single drone being tracked by several radars.

Affordable & Smart

Military capability. A fraction of the price.

Radars are expensive. And military radars are seriously expensive. Don’t expect to receive much pocket change from a million Euros when purchasing a military radar re-purposed to do drone detection. And by the way, you probably shouldn’t be expecting it to classify drones separately from birds either.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. In much the same way that drone technology itself has recently become affordable and accessible, we’ve combined affordable hardware, with extremely smart software, to provide you with a military drone detection and tracking capability, at a fraction of the cost of a military system.

Tracking Exact Flight Paths

Learning curve? More like, operating straight out of the box.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to use our drone detection radars. In fact, you don’t even need to be a radar scientist.

We’ve built our radars to be simple, intuitive, and easy for you to use. And that goes for both the hardware and the software.

We’ve colour coded the radar interface so you can be confident everything’s running smoothly, and in the unlikely event something’s wrong, you’ll be notified automatically.

The radar display is a map-based interface (Google Earth as standard), comprising easy to understand colour-coded tracks.

Red tracks indicate drones and their flight path. Orange tracks represent suspected drones. Green tracks represent birds and other moving targets.

All track types can be toggled on and off, and the track visualisations and colours are all user configurable.

Oh, and you can, of course, push our drone tracks and alarms, in real-time, to your own external security systems and command and control systems.
